Easy Teriyaki Chicken Wings

This recipe is one that my mom made forever. It's amazingly simple, and you can change it up if you like. A touch of sesame oil would be good, or you can use fresh garlic and ginger instead of powdered. Also, feel free to add some heat to these, if you like.

I was in a hurry Saturday when I mixed up the marinade, and didn't change anything, just made them as-is.

Every single time I make these, they all get eaten right away. Not just eaten, inhaled! I remember making a huge batch of these for my husband and his friends. It was like watching pigs at feeding time, lol. After being starved for a week.

I don't know what it is--maybe people get sick of the really popular buffalo wings after a while? Please don't send me buffalo-wing-lover hate mail, hehe. I make those, too. See those here and here. We love wings! All kinds of wings. But when my husband knows I'm making these? He's a happy guy.

They're not saucy and drippy after cooking--a little sticky, but not too bad. So they make good finger food. And they'd be perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl parties, too! But make a lot!

I marinate them as long as possible. I've even marinated them in the fridge for as long as 3 days. But if you do that, be sure they haven't already been sitting in your fridge for a day or two. Better safe than wiping out your entire house of guests with food poisoning. Be smart about that, and your friends will thank you instead of charging your house with gardening/angry mob tools. You can even freeze these in the marinade, then thaw when you need them.

Seriously complicated recipe, coming up!

Yum! My mom makes these all the time. She also adds orange juice to the marinade. They are SO amazing, I can taste them right now. Your photos definitely do them justice - I don't think my mom's ever looked as good as the ones in your pictures!

Yum! Great for football watching.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Yes, easy. Love it. I will steal this sauce for my next grilled chicken...if I can find my grill in the snow.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDawn

Oh oh oh! I don't like hot wings so these look perfect for me!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkat

These look absolutely yummy! and I love how easy they are to make. I will definitely try this recipe. :)

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAK Mom

I can't get my picky pants hubster to eat wings so I'm going to try this marinade on some chicken tenders. SOON.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterApril in CT

Love this recipe and can't wait to try it. The girls will love it!!!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJudy@nofearentertaining

Funny I took some wing out of the freezer last night, how did you know I was going to do that? Now I have a recipe to go with them! Thanks A Bundle!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

Mmmmm...I'll take an order for brunch today, please. So much better than the cold pizza I just ate. I think I've made "wings" just once. There has to be come kind of a law about how wrong that is...I must make these...

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkellypea

My guys love wings and this sounds very good especially w/as you suggested fresh ginger & garlic. Here's my problem....I can't seem to get the skin crispy when I bake 'em in the oven. The kids pick 'em over and will only eat a few. Any tips? Yours look a little crispier than mine. THX!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterIngrid

Thanks, everyone!

Ingrid, I just bake them at 350, for one hour--nothing special other than that. You could turn the broiler on, but watch them carefully. Let me know if you give them a try!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterElle

Oh man, those look glazy and crispy and delicious and perfect! I'm comin to your Super Bowl party!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterThe Peanut Butter Boy

Sign me up 'cause I'm coming too :). Haven't had wings in a while, don't know why though. They'll be on my list for my next grocery store trip and yeap I'm definitely making these!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLore

Thanks for sharing - Can't wait to make them!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCam

Looks great! I just got nominated to have a superbowl party and i was wondering what to make! i'll let you know how it goes...

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGinny

That looks so good! My girlfriend loves wings, I'll have to make these for her.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBob

If I were going to use fresh ginger..would I use the same amount? I wasnt sure if using the real deal ment using less or more.

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSonya

confession: i'm a little uncomfortable with the appearance of chicken wings. they're strange-looking suckers. i'd enjoy these, though--love that glaze!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGrace

This looks like Super Bowl Party Food to me!

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBunny

Oh i have a similar recipe for chicken wings, i think i put 5-spice powder in it too. Love it, love them, love you!!.. ok, i'm getting carried away again. :-P

January 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZen Chef

Yumm, looks awesome to me! My mouth is literally watering at 5:30 AM! lol

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHoneyB

Wow! My son Mr. Persnickety will love this! A must do!

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJamie

What a great recipe and they look fabulous!

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterrecipes2share

I roared at the "pigs at feeding time" analogy. Can you just imagine the visual. The wings look pretty darned amazing and after marinating them for 8 hours I bet the flavour is something else.

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered Commentergiz

Wow that looks great!

January 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJessy and her dog Winnie

Yummy... I like chicken wings!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSelba

Perfect finger eats, I can't wait to try them!

January 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJen

I'm making these this weekend... thanks!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPatti

I love all kinds of wings, like 'hatorade" here!

I am now going to indulge in a big basket of wins tonight...wish me luck!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPeter M

My husband recently made buffalo wings, I bet he will want to try these next!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMaria

There really is nothing quite as good as a sweet, sticky, slightly burnt wing. These look wonderful!

January 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFoodycat

Looks great, Elle, I can see why your family loves them so much!

It doesn't get much easier than this - and they sound delicious!

January 24, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterDeborah

I am bookmarking this! This comes on the next time we have a party!

February 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMrs Erg├╝l

Hi Elle

In your headnote you mention using a touch of sesame oil, what's a touch and when would I incorporate it into the recipe. Also you say I could you use fresh ginger and fresh garlic, would the measurements be the same or would it be larger because dried spices are supposed to more potent than fresh. What kind of heat are you talking about that I can add to the wings.

March 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Do you bake the wings with the marinade or do you take them out of the marinade to bake them? Thank you

November 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRobin

Hi Robin--take them out of the marinade first to bake. :)

November 8, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterElle

I want to thank you for this great flavorful recipe. I made it with chicken tenders and it turned out very tasty. One thing I would do differently next time is put some of the marinade in with the tenders as they dried out in an hours time. Thank you for sharing. Ann

January 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnn

Hi Ann--thank you very much, I'm happy you liked the marinade. Tenders should only take about 15, maybe 20 minutes to cook. Flipping them halfway through cooking would help, too.

January 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterElle

The oil should be olive oil right?

March 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDanelle

Hi Danelle--you can use any oil you like in these. Enjoy!
